Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus’ global smash hit musical MAMMA MIA! welcomes a host of new Broadway stars to the Winter Garden Theatre stage tonight, Tuesday, September 22, as Tony Award® nominee John Dossett, Tony Award® winner Beth Leavel, Patrick Boll, Alyse Alan Louis, Eric William Morris, Patrick Boll, David Andrew Macdonald, Alison Briner, Michael Mindlin and Halle Morse join the cast.

MAMMA MIA! stars Tony Award® nominee John Dossett and Tony Award® winner Beth Leavel as “Sam Carmichael” and “Donna Sheridan.” Alyse Alan Louis plays bride-to-be “Sophie Sheridan,” making her Broadway debut opposite Eric William Morris (Coram Boy) as fiancé “Sky.”

Patrick Boll (Faith Healer) and David Andrew Macdonald (“Guiding Light,” Coram Boy) join the company as “Bill Austin” and “Harry Bright,” rounding out the trio of men from Donna’s past who are Sophie’s three possible dads.

Judy McLane (Chess, Kiss of the Spiderwoman) and Allison Briner are “Tanya” and “Rosie,” Donna’s best friends and former back-up band known as “Donna and the Dynamos” who reunite on a Greek island for the wedding of Donna’s daughter, Sophie.

MAMMA MIA! also features Halle Morse as “Lisa” and Amina Robinson as “Ali,” Sophie’s best friends, and Raymond J. Lee as “Eddie” and Michael Mindlin as Sky’s sidekick “Pepper.”

Seen by over 40 million people around the world, MAMMA MIA!, is celebrating over 3,000 performances in its eighth smash hit year at Broadway’s Winter Garden Theatre and remains among Broadway’s top  selling musicals. The original West End production of MAMMA MIA! is celebrating 10 years and over 4,000 performances in London, an international tour has visited more than 40 foreign cities, and the blockbuster feature film adaptation, produced by Judy Craymer and Gary Goetzman, is the most successful movie musical of all time grossing $600 million worldwide.

With a worldwide gross of over $2 Billion, MAMMA MIA! is acclaimed by the Associated Press as “quite simply, a phenomenon.”

Inspired by the story-telling magic of ABBA’s timeless songs, writer Catherine Johnson’s sunny, funny tale of family and friendship unfolds on a tiny Greek island.  On the eve of her wedding, a daughter’s quest to discover the identity of her father brings 3 men from her mother’s past back to the island they last visited 20 years ago.  Songs including “Dancing Queen”; “The Winner Takes It All”; “Money, Money, Money” and “Take A Chance on Me” are all featured in this feel-good night of fun and laughter.

Produced by Judy Craymer, Richard East and Björn Ulvaeus for Littlestar in association with Universal, the creative team responsible for bringing MAMMA MIA! to theatrical life includes some of the most gifted and celebrated talents of musical theatre and opera. With music and lyrics by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, MAMMA MIA! is written by Catherine Johnson and directed by Phyllida Lloyd. MAMMA MIA! has choreography by Anthony Van Laast, production design by Mark Thompson, lighting design by Howard Harrison, sound design by Andrew Bruce and Bobby Aitken, and musical supervision, additional material and arrangements by Martin Koch.
